If a group of friends get blackout drunk and wake up with a tiger in their hotel room, it is a blockbuster movie. If a group of friends get blackout drunk and wake up with a penguin in their apartment, it is Video Lunch.
Recently three friends got hammered and broke into SeaWorld after dark. They then went swimming with the dolphins and absconded with a 7 year-old fairy penguin named Dirk.
In the light of day, keeping the penguin didn’t seem like a great idea. Lacking a better plan, they released Dirk into a canal. The particular canal, however, is known to be frequented by sharks and dolphins and Dirk was chased out of the water… and into the path of a dog. Luckily, he was saved from the canine and restored to his home SeaWorld and his mating partner Peaches.
The three revelers have been charged with criminal trespassing, theft and illegal possession of a protected animal.
